The conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo is not affecting the government forces and the rebels alone but putting most of its toll to the unarmed civilians.
It is the civilian population that is feeling much of the war’s pinch that even those at the front line, they are living in panic, often caught between the fire exchange, women raped, men abducted and many left homeless.
These people are rendered helpless and vulnerable to all kinds of torture during such situations; they need consideration before the two warring parties start shelling bullets at each other.
Thank God that after days of sleepless nights, the poor can be spared of sounds of gunshots and shelling in Eastern Congo region.
For those who have ever been caught up in a war know what it means waking up to such noises and failing to eat or sleep waiting for your turn when fighters approach your locality.
The cease fire should yield positive results that civilians can be able to trust them (fighters), Regional governments should come in and help before their own people find themselves in such conflict.
